When you see the word "dismantlement" in front of a noun, especially when that noun is a gadget filled with nifty parts to dig through, you know it's time for another installment of the excellent point-and-click Dismantlement series! Just like previous releases, Dismantlement: Mini Keyboard charges you with the task of taking apart a gadget with nothing more than a screwdriver. The insides of this contraption won't be familiar to anyone who has actually pulled apart a keyboard before, and there might be a surprise (or six) waiting for you behind that rear panel!
Use the mouse to click on parts of the keyboard, zooming in on certain areas and opening tiny hatches when applicable. Any exposed screw can be removed with a simple click, and you can move back through the parts of the keyboard or even view the opposite side with the button in the top corner of the screen.
Much like a room escape game, Dismantlement: Mini Keyboard's challenge rests in its puzzles, many of which are code-related. For example, in this rather unusual keyboard, removing the back panel reveals some hatches that can only be opened by entering the proper sequence of numbers or letters. We don't know about you, but our keyboard certainly doesn't have that feature tucked away behind the circuits. If the Dismantlement series was going for realism, however, there would be a distinct lack of timers and bombs in things like toasters and tea canisters. We can suspend our disbelief for a few moments while we get absorbed in a new Dismantlement game!
Grab your screwdriver and get crackin', it's time to take apart a mini keyboard!
